NFL can swing dead chickens over their heads and do can can dancing - I have NO interest in NFL anything.

College only.
And Olympic curling.

No MLB, no hockey, never had any use for basketball, no NFL -
sca -rewwww 'em all.

I don't give a crap what my mailman think, my car mechanic, my freaking barber - why do I give what some idiot football player thinks?

NFL planning extensive social injustice content for Week 1 of season

Great news!

The NFL is planning extensive content around social injustice for Week 1 of the regular season! Oh happy days! Among options discussed by the league and players union: Players reading personalized poems and delivering first-person vignettes based on experience with social injustice. These stories could be incorporated into game-day broadcasts.

Wow. I can't wait.

I will likely watch my favorite team, but with the sound turned off.

IMO the NFL will always remain popular as long as a significant number of folks tune into the games because they have some type of wager or financial interest in the outcome.

Players reading poems.....

We have a ball that is not round,
We paint white lines upon the ground.
I think I have the gist of it,
This GD game is full of S***


Break a leg, boys.
Seriously, break a F**** leg.

When the NFL commissioner comes out and declares that the league erred in its handling of the Colin Kaepernick charade...what else were we to expect as a follow-up? My feeling is that this will be more disastrous, from a viewing standpoint, than even the biggest pessimist could predict. IMO...the players will overdue it with the "politics"...and the viewers will end up disgusted beyond belief. It doesn't look good when a bunch of young, spoiled multi-millionaires feign anger and lash out against "inequality".

NBA ratings are down 45%. The 2 things football that no one else does is a huge fantasy following and Gambling. That the other sports don't. Personally I'll watch the Giants turn on the game at 1;05 and that's it. No 4 o`or o'clock or Sunday or Monday. I just the Giants.. if they do a any in game stuff I'm out

team game

these are all team games and as much as they say we are all together it is impossible to have the team together on field when this shit is going on.. you can't tell me there are some players on either side of the fence.. and that shows... Team is a thing of the past if this crap continues...

Calling a football "club" a team is ridiculous.
There is not team in football.

There is Big-ass star who gets a zillion bucks and there are no uniforms anymore. No two players dress alike. Looks like pick 'em
games.

Football is non-essential.

With all the racing coverage during the pandemic, I hope no pro sports ever come back.

Since they started putting dresses on qb's (you can't hit 'em), NBA can take 2-3 steps with ball in hand for no traveling and people pass up lay-ups for 3 pt. shots, and in baseball it is okay to strike out 175 times and bat .220 as long as you hit 20+ homers.


At times I feel like I woke up after 20 years and am trying to figure out what the hell happened to professional sports. Damn, I am sounding like an old man.

PS: I try not to mix sports with politics and social (in)justice. Wish the athletes did not as well.

Chris Davis immediately comes to mind. What a joke.
Don't even think he's hit 20 home runs since he signed his mega-million dollar contract.
